The tone of that article is sort of horrible/condescending. There may be people outside of our own sort of culture who would benefit from a clue to run the hell away.

I've figured it out the real meaning now. It's actually a warning about Fan Death.

If you're actually interested in the problem of writing warning signs that will be heeded after your civilization has collapsed, here is one of the studies on the issue. Warning: gray literature.

That link 404s for me, but I'm sure I know which study it is (the "this is not a place of honor" one, right?). While the concept - leaving a message to stay readable for 10000 years - is extremely interesting, I find the reasons behind it rather silly. It's a solution in search of a problem - any societal collapse that leads to the entire concept of radioactivity being forgotten would leave mankind with bigger problems than accidentally drilling/mining into a radioactive waste (which, BTW, doesn't take all that long to become indistinguishable from plain old toxic waste, which nobody's building long-term storage facilities for) storage facility in the middle of the desert...
